Is climate really changing?

State of the art

But... are they social responsible

Geoengineering ...

There is a risk of engineering activity may be driven by profit motives, as commercial sector already demonstrated interest in the development of some methods.Geoengineering methods should be responsibly and openly researched, and only deployed by common consent, as there will probably be winners and losers associated with its application. Therefore the social and environmental impacts must be adequately evaluated and it´s acceptability determined by scientific, technical, social, legal and political factors.


... gives some solutions?!

Global Mitigation Projects

Kyoto Protocol: international agreement linked to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, which commits its parties by setting internationally binding emission reduction targets (December 1997 and entered into force on 16 February 2005).The Kyoto mechanisms are:- International Emissions TradingClean Development Mechanism (CDM);- Joint implementation (JI).In December 2012 was adopted the "Doha Amendment to the Kyoto Protocol".

What is it?The term "geoengineering" describes an array of technologies that aim, through large-scale and deliberate modifications of Earth's energy balance, to reduce temperatures and counteract anthropogenic climate change (Bracmort ' Lattanzio, 2013). It has two approaches: Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) and Solar Radiation Management (SRM). SRM methods could have a beneficial effect in short time scale and its less expensive. But it has higher potencial environmental impact.
